The Hoosier Lottery® was created by IC 4-30 as a body politic and corporate separate from state government, and functions as much as possible as an entrepreneurial business enterprise. The Hoosier Lottery abides and is governed by two different sets of laws, the Indiana Code and the Indiana Administrative Code.
What is the difference between the Indiana Code and the Indiana Administrative Code?
The Indiana Code organizes, by subject matter, the hundreds of laws passed by the Indiana General Assembly. This portion of the Indiana Code originates from the Indiana Legislature. The purpose of Indiana Code 4-30 is to establish the Hoosier Lottery as well as help guide the Lottery to operate in a transparent and successful manner.
By contrast, theIndiana Administrative Code organizes the regulations developed by the various Indiana state agency administrators who are responsible for implementing—administrating—the specific provisions of laws enacted by the State Legislature. Title 65 of the Indiana Administrative Code originates internally from the Hoosier Lottery. The Administrative Code lays out specific provisions which governs decisions from procurement to how some Hoosier Lottery games are played. .
